Feyenoord vs Roda JC Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview
It's been a blistering start for Feyenoord. They currently top the Eredivisie with six wins from six. Roda's fortunes have been the polar opposite, losing five of six to find themselves in the relegation places. Below are our predictions, betting tips and preview.
Game: Feyenoord vs Roda JC
Venue: Stadion Feijenoord
Kick-off: Sunday 25th September, 3.45pm
I expected United to go to Feyenoord and get a result. I knew the hosts had started well, but they'd had their struggles in Europe and playing Dutch teams is a different story to competing in Europe. We didn't know what struggles may follow for United.There is no denying now just how impressive the hosts have been. Beating United 1-0 at home was a solid result, but it's nothing like what would follow. It could be a result we look back on later in the season. Feyenoord held firm until the 82nd minute on the weekend, when they broke and earned a 1-0 win away to PSV.
PSV, as always, are considered the most likely winner of the Dutch league. Even though it's early in the season, Feyenoord have thrust themselves in to pole position and I can't see past them earning an emphatic win this weekend.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips
Feyenoord to beat the strugglers at home is only 2/9 with Ladbrokes and the draw is as high as 5/1 with Betfair and many others. The biggest price of our weekend games belongs to Roda JC, who are 15/1 with Bet365 and do not stand a chance here.
It's always dangerous to write off a team so vehemently. But Roda will lose this game and comfortably so. Feyenoord have won all six of their games in the league and they've scored nine goals in their opening three games already. Roda's defence has been abysmal and they're likely to be breached multiple times on the road here.
They somehow managed a 2-2 draw away to Ajax, but things went more as expected when they were beaten by PSV 4-0 last time out. That followed a 2-0 loss to Go Ahead. Feyenoord have been absolutely dominant in this fixture, but did draw 1-1 here last season.I don't see that they have it in them to get a result against such a high flying team at present. They’ve lost four of five without registering a goal. I feel they're in the wrong place at the wrong time here, so back Feyenoord –1.75AH as our free betting tip at odds of 4/5 with Bet365 and the hosts to win 3-0 as our correct score at a price of 15/2 via Paddy Power.
Feyenoord have been dynamic going forward this season, scoring goals from all over the pitch. They have three strikers who have managed three goals in six games so far, but Dirk Kuyt has been the most dangerous of the three and could get on the score sheet here at odds of 5/6 with Betfair.
